Circle the calendar: one week ago Monday, the Canadian government stopped putting bogus "fuel saving devices" in the tanks of their vehicles. The "Econopro" (good luck finding them now
) was sold to the government, who spent thousands installing them then bragging that they were doing something about the enviroment. These little babies were going to reduce emissions by 50%; increase efficiency by at least 10%, and possibly cure cancer, too! All for the low, low price of $750 a pop!
Don't believe it? Well, they shouldn't have
To actually improve efficiency, try asking a transportation economist and regional planner
. You know, someone who has to deal with facts.
